If my seatbelt was not buckled when the driver of the car I was riding in caused an accident that injured me, can I sue for damages?

“Yes, you can still sue for damages. However, Florida does have a seat belt defense. The driver of the vehicle that you’re in may use this defense to show that you in some way may have contributed to the cause of your own injuries.”
